D.S.M Feedback

The feedback from Something More was good. They said the illustrations were strong and the idea was good. They said they liked how I narrowed down the idea to one sector of the council and how it modernised the attractions and made them more appealing to a younger audience. However they said I could of pushed the idea further and applied it to more things to make it a stronger branding. I have enjoyed this brief and it has made me realise that I like working with vectors and digital illustration.

Yaybahar by Gorkem Sen

I came across this video today of a guy that has created a new instrument. The Yaybahar is an electric-free, totally acoustic instrument designed by Gorkem Sen. The vibrations from the strings are transmitted via the coiled springs to the frame drums. These vibrations are turned into sound by the membranes which echo back and forth on the coiled springs. This results in an unique listening experience with an hypnotic surround sound.

Project 53

Today I have sent my portfolio to the design studio Project 53. They work in building branding across multiple channels and developing adaptive websites and tactile printwork. They are based in Leeds as well which will be useful for me. I really like the work they have created so I hope I can get a placement here.

The Hendo Hoverboard

The Hendo Hoverboard is just a first step product for a broader use of the MFA technology, which will enable a totally new generation of lift and motion tech that is going to change the way that people see transportation. The applications for the technology are limitless. Scaling up the tech may see us saying goodbye to friction and hello to hovering cars, MagLev trains that don’t require such special rails and maybe eventually achieving their aim of earthquake-proof buildings.
